Mike and his team were extremely polite and helpful. This is cabin camping, if you are expecting the Ritz you are setting yourself up for disappointment. We had 8 in our party and were comfortable in cabin 10. Close to all the Royal Gorge attractions, and a short drive to all there is to do in Colorado Springs. We definitely...

First off, I have to say the thing that makes this resort so great are the staff. Mike and the gang were great! They took care of our every need. Secondly, the view is just breath taking. Words and pictures just don't do it justice. We stayed for 5 nights and loved every single one. The pool and hot tub...

We had a great spot that was private and looked out to the Mountains. The pool and hot tub were nice with the cooler air we experienced. The bathrooms and showers were clean and usable. The Blow Up pillow was not inflated and our site was not clean when we parked....with some love this could be a GREAT campground...but it...

This park is made for young adults. From the monstrous bouncing bag to the Frisbee Golf course. The little ones only came home to eat. The Management is new and for the most part everyone is still in training but they are desperate to help any way they can. The restrooms are very clean and since it is a new...

My son and I took a "cabin" trip to Colorado and were fortunate to find this gem. Our cabin was clean, cozy, and warm. We were surprised by the number of activities at the campground! Rather than drive back into Canon City, we decided to stay at the campground and allow my kid to be a kid. There was a...

Another fine stay at Prospectors. Thanks Mike and staff. Campers can be secluded or right up front. Close to everything in Canon City. Not sure what to do just ask...very good info on Canon City activities or a little further off the beaten path. Another great stay.

Went to this resort with high hopes last year with my family and was a little surprised of my experience. Extremely unfriendly staff, the owner seems to have a bit of a alcohol/anger problem, guess that is a perk of having a liquor store on site. The wife also seems very demeaning and rude. Seems like more of a "resort"...

The campground looked nothing like the pictures. The weeds were horrible, they had come around with a weed eater and cut down the weeds but did not pick them up (way overgrown) and there were a lot of stickers. My son and daughter-in-law had to pull weeds when they got to their site and then a woman came around with...

We arrived in Canon City knowing we needed to find a place to stay. We stopped at one camping resort and when they didn't have what we needed, one of the places they referred us to was Prospectors.

Stayed in the RV park, close to attractions, good rates. Owners were friendly and helpful. Also great relationships (therefore discounts) with other attractions for staying with them. Would definitely go back.

“We liked they way site 68 was tucked behind a cabin and had alot of trees around it. Site 71 is good for privacy as there is your camper between you and the site 70 and no other sites on the other side. Any of the wooded section sites you can't go wrong with; just tell Josie what you are looking for and she will reserve you the best available.”
